Fashion. Community. Sustainability.

Love Fashion & Retail?

Want to combine a love of fashion with a business opportunity that is not only good for your community, but also good for the planet? A sustainable franchise that is recession-proof? Plato's Closet continues its dominance as the leading national retail resale store of its kind, and we are looking for more passionate entrepreneurs who want to start their own business and share this journey with us. With over 500+ store locations throughout North America and new stores opening each month, our impact on our customers, communities and environment continues to grow as we reach millions of teen and twenty-something consumers. The brand is rapidly expanding, but there are still untapped markets across the US and Canada ripe for a new franchisee to establish their own Plato's Closet.
